    Am flying soon into Manchester, train to Penrith - does anyone have any idea where I can buy gas cartridges for a 'Pocket Rocket' in Penrith? They need to be the 're-sealable' type. Can't carry those on the plane, and from Penrith I want to catch a bus to Threlkeld, to begin my 6-day trek round Lakeland, up Clough Head first (depending on the weather, of course!).

    From the train station turn left past the MacDonalds place, continue on past the NFU offices and Castle Garage, cross the road, head past Morrisons, which will be on your right, and on down a hill called Brunswick Road. Turn right at the bottom of the hill, go past the cinema and in another 100 yards is Penrith Outdoor Pursuits, which sells Coleman cartridges which work fine with MSR stoves. Tell them to give me a discount for putting trade their way.

    And have a good trip.

    Thanks! Nicely detailed! I could live on crispbread & cheese and cold water (& whisky!), but it might be nicer to have hot soup in my tent (somewhere around Stybarrow Dodd?) and a cup of tea at sunrise

    You'll need the X5 bus to Threlkeld
